Authorities are searching for a motorist responsible for a hit-and-run crash that killed a cyclist in Compton early Sunday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies responded to a call just after midnight Sunday at the intersection of Bradfield Avenue and Alondra Boulevard, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Danny Martinez. The cyclist appeared to have been struck by a car that had then driven off, he said.
NBC Los Angeles identified the victim as 59-year-old Darnell Parker Sr. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities are still searching for clues that may help identify the driver of the car, Martinez said.
